Publisher's Summary

The road to real financial freedom is paved with real estate. Do you know how to harness its power? 

Ninety-five percent of potential real estate investors never buy a single property. 

Is it because real estate isn’t a sound investment? Is it because they’re priced out the market? No. It’s because they don’t recognize the earning potential in real estate. 

Nearly 36.6 percent of US households are renting - that’s the biggest percentage since 1965. Now is the golden era for residential real estate investment.

Perhaps, you thought real estate investment was reserved for millionaires or business tycoons, but the truth is, the path to success is achievable to anyone. You just need the right strategy to reach your earning potential. 

With more than 30 years of experience in residential real estate, Chris Mason is in the perfect position to teach you how to maximize your cash flow through smart investment.

If you’re feeling the grind of the nine-to-five lifestyle, it’s time you learned a foolproof way of generating a passive income. In Residential Returns: How to Get Your Foot in the Door in Real Estate and Succeed with Single and Multifamily Rental Property Investing, you’ll find exactly what you need to set you firmly on the road to financial freedom.

You’ll discover:

  • The types of properties that make the best investments

Great for future investors!

I’m considering getting into real estate investing next year so I’m trying to learn up on all that I can. It was a good lesson easy to understand a lot of information for a newbie like me but all good! One thing I will mention is that I wish the chapters were titled in the table of contents so I easily know which one I want to refer back to.

What a great resource

I'm about to inherit some rental properties, and I had no idea what I was getting into. This book gave me such a broad base of knowledge. I'm so glad I found it. What an excellent A-Z resource for starting and maintaining a rental income business. Super motivating too. Great narrator.

A must-listen

Being new to real-estate and still working a full time job, I don’t have much free time to educate myself on what I need to know. I was considering investing in a multi-family property but this book cleared up all of the considerations with this type of investment and now I know single-family properties are a better fit. Thank you!!

I was a RRE noob before this audiobook!

Chris thank you very much for this audiobook, I was an RRE Noob but not anymore!
I learn a lot of tips and secrets about research markets and generating effective leads, financial documentation, how to acquire capital for a downpayment, and easy formulas to evaluate properties. Your experience of how to buy and manage the acquired properties was invaluable those were "the cherry on top" for me.

I recommend this audiobook for anybody who wants to learn about residential real estate investing. Thanks again!

All you need to know

When investing in real estate you may be under the impression that it is as simple as finding a nice house putting in an offer and getting any tenant in. There is a lot more to know than that and this book goes into detail about everything you need to understand fully when beginning to invest in a rental property including how to get the right tenant and the right price.

Super helpful

I’ve never actually invested in real estate, but I’ve been gathering more and more info on it in recent months. I’d add this one to the list of “super helpful” sources on the subject. It lays out comprehensive strategies for accruing passive income and gaining financial freedom through real estate investing, and it does so in a straightforward, easy-to-understand fashion.

It also helps the listener overcome psychological blocks and fears that are preventing him / her from getting in the real estate game from the get-go. Overall, I think it’s a very helpful listen that anyone interested in the subject should consider checking out.

Valuable beginners resource

Residential real estate investing can be a minefield, and it pays to know which pitfalls to look out for and avoid. This book isn't a get rich quick in real estate book, it's quite the opposite. It lays out a practical, long term (emphasis on long term) plan for building up a great income stream in real estate. The chapter on the different types of loan options available was especially useful because this helps you best manage your cashflow and gives you an accurate picture of just what kind of initial outlay you should expect.

Highly recommend!

A great guide for beginners

this book provides some great information on real estate investing for beginners. As someone who is not too familiar with the property market, I feel like I have learned a lot. As opposed to many books that try to provide short term gains, this audiobook offers some excellent advice and guidance for thinking about the long term. Personally, I thought that the chapter about financial strategy and loan options was incredibly informative. Highly recommended!
